Salmons, Locks and Gardens Hidden in Seattle

In my recent visit to Seattle, I discovered a jewel where I was able to visit the locks, salmon runs and an exotic garden. I went to the Ballard Locks where there was a free tour of the Ship locks, a Botanical Garden and a Salmon run viewing with an educational center.

Amazon.com’s “Call Me” feature

I was looking to buy something on Amazon. Pricing online was showing $254 and when checking out, it was like 349.99.

So I hit the “Call Me” feature as I headed out for lunch and it rang on my cell phone. Nice, and it was quickly greeted with a voice saying that it will be connnected to a person in a second.

12:45 later, I was still on hold. That is 12 MINUTES, 45 SECONDS

I got on the phone and the person said, Ohh.. that is a price mistake. Click-he hung up.

Thanks for wasting my time

Used golf balls – Save the environment + money

I stumble upon this website, www.lostgolfballs.com and they were selling used golf balls. As a golfer that wacks the grass, not the ball, this was a match made in heaven. Often, I would find that my golf balls would astonishing dissapear after hitting them, usually donating them to lakes, long grass, out of sight, etc.

I got some AAAA Titleist Pro V1 from them at 1/2 off the retail price and I can’t be happier with the quality of the balls and the price.

Like the Geico commercial, I just saved a bunch of money on golf balls at lost golf balls fot com.

yeah, I know, i shouldn’t be playing pro v1 golf balls.

AIG – Down and out after a bailout, GO FOR A SPA

What do you do after a federal bailout? Looking at looming unemployment? Worried about your future?

Nahh, don’t worry. How about go spend $440,000 in a posh resort in california?

According to CNN, that is what AIG did..

..its executives, complete with spa treatments, banquets and golf outings, according to lawmakers investigating the company’s meltdown

AIG sent its executives to the coastal St. Regis resort south of Los Angeles, California, even as the company tapped into an $85 billion loan from the government it needed to stave off bankruptcy. The resort tab included $23,380 worth of spa treatments for AIG employees, according to invoices the resort turned over to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

I guess the executives have a different rule than the middle class.
